This heaven sent oasis is on the outskirts of Kandy and was such an amazingly chilled and relaxing retreat from it's hustle and bustle. The pool was an absolute bonus set within pristine grounds that entertained us every day from the humming birds to the troop of monkeys, it was such a beautiful surround. The owners were delightful and nothing... More

I adored sweet cinnamon. It's definitely worth staying here if you are looking for a bit of zen! We stayed here for 2 nights while we saw the sights in kandy. And I'm so glad we did, it's such a wonderful and tranquil place. The gardens are just delightful and the staff were so proud to show us around and... More

What strikes you about the place is how incredibly peaceful it is and yet only 10 mins from the main town/ lake/ Temple of Tooth. The jungle surrounding the cottage is authentic. This is an ancestral property of the couple who run the place and they have clearly restored it with a lot of loce and care and look after... More

This is a boutique hotel in a stunningly beautiful setting. The owners provide excellent service; indeed, it is the quality of the staff that makes the hotel stand out. Every member of staff is delightful: friendly, polite and cannot do enough to help. They offer a truly personalised service. The accommodation is charming, and the meals that we had were... More

Not only was this the nicest place we stayed in Sri Lanka, it was one of the best hotel/guest house stays I've ever had. The property is so charming with a beautiful, old colonial house. The proprieters are beyond nice and the rest of the staff is so kind and charming. The food was very good, although the portions are... More

This is a lovely location in the backwaters of Kandy. The owners have made an a truly peaceful place to relax and unwind. We had a suite which was in a small bungalow away from the mail house and it was very comfortable and quite. Breakfast was excellent and we eat in for dinner which was very good. Run by... More

I couldn't speak more highly of this haven of peace. Close enough to Kandy to get to places easily; far enough away to enjoy the sounds of the forest. Utterly charming, courteous and hospitable manager and staff (and their tubby dog Molly). Lovely large rooms, and quiet garden. Only a small number of rooms so the place is never crowded.... More

Only ten minutes by tuk-tuk from Kandy station, this hotel feels like a world apart. When I arrived, I was served afternoon tea in a reception room while my bags were carried to my room. My room was large and luxurious, and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel is set back from the nearest roads, and so my room... More

Lovely setting, delightful staff and very easy to get in to town. It's our first stop in Sri Lanka and we're impressed. No real complaints at all, but the garden could be made a little more of e.g. more seating areas. They have the pool ready to go too but, again, needs some loungers/ seats round it.

We spent 2 nights here at the start of our Sri Lanka holiday. The building and room were really quite impressive, far more than what you would get in any hotel. The staff do everything that they can to make your stay memorable and are really very good at what they do. They prepared dinner for us on one of... More
